As a result, a total investment of over EUR 22 million has been committed to the development of next generation technologies for the Symbian platform. This development project is being led by the Symbian Foundation as part of a consortium of major European technology organisations.

Is this an example of technology socialism?

More like communism. I'm sick and tired of EU hiring academic fools without any real world experience on major places. This would been great news 5 years ago but now it's just waste of money. I guess grand plan is to employ those people that Nokia is kicking out from symbian division. It really shows how much Nokia appreciate there experience by not trying to relocate them. Pure leftwing stupidity on it's best. They probaply spend next few years doing crappy software that noone will use. Well done EU!
